Acrylic Ink FAQs
Other artists have asked us...
I’m not familiar with the name Rubine in artist colors for the Acrylic Ink color Rubine Red. What does it mean?
Rubine is an adjective formed on the ruby gem name.
If I mix fluorescent colors together, will they still be fluorescent?
Fluorescents have a great visual impact when combined, though the mixes will not be fluorescent
Do the Liquitex fluorescent colors glow?
Yes, under ultra-violet light and a black light, the Liquitex fluorescent colors will glow.
I see a lightfastness rating of NR on the fluorescent and iridescent colors. What does this mean?
For lightfastness, NR means “Not rated” – meaning that it has not been tested by ASTM for lightfastness. ASTM D4303 is the test method for Lightfastness for pigment-based artist materials. Fluorescent dyes and color coated micas are not usually in scope for this test as they are not real pigments with Color Index as such. Fluorescent colors by their very nature are dye based, they are known to be fugitive and cannot withstand the negative effects of UV light like most pigments. This pertains to all fluorescent colors and has nothing to do with a professional or student range of art materials. We do our own in-house Blue wool test for Permanence rating where we test all our colors.
What should I use to create rich glazed effects?
We recommend using transparent colors from our Acrylic Ink or Soft Body ranges mixed with our Professional Glazing Medium.
Can I use your Acrylic Ink in my calligraphy pen?
Yes you can. You should flush it out with our Pen Cleaner after use, before the ink dries in the nib.
Is Acrylic Ink a paint or an ink?
Our Acrylic Ink is a very fluid acrylic made with very finely ground art pigments.
